Withdrawals could be initiated by the student or by the school. For students enrolled in school under Federal financial aid, the R2T4 procedure is performed first and the institutional refund policy is performed second.

Alhambra Medical University shall have a refund policy for the return of unearned institutional charges if the student cancels an enrollment agreement or withdraws during a period of attendance. The refund policy for students who have completed 60 percent or less of the period of attendance shall be a pro rata refund.

Return to Title IV Policy

Return to Title IV Funds (R2T4) Policy is fully compliant with all the policies, procedures, and guidelines from the US Department of Education and the related Federal laws and regulations, including regulations of the Federal Student Financial Aid programs, under Title IV of the Federal Higher Education Act of 1965.

Federal financial aid (Title IV funds) are awarded to a student under the assumption the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of Title IV funds they were originally scheduled to, or did receive.

If a recipient of Title IV funds withdraws after beginning attendance, the amount of Title IV funds earned by the student must be determined. If the amount disbursed to the student is greater than the amount the student earned, unearned funds must be returned to the Federal government.

When a recipient of Title IV funds withdraws from an institution during a payment period of enrollment, the school must determine the amount of Federal Student Aid funds the student earned based on the student’s Last Date of Attendance (LDA). By subtracting the amount of funds the school is entitled to retain from the total amount of funds the school received, the school will determine the amount of funding to be returned to the Department of Education (Return to Title IV) and the amount of funds to be retained by the school.

The returning of Title IV Funds is performed and must be completed within thirty (30) days from the student’s Last Day of Attendance (LDA), or within forty-five (45) days from the Date of Determination (DOD) of the student’s withdrawal.

Funds are returned to Title IV programs in the following order:

                  • Direct Unsubsidized loan
                  • Direct Subsidized loan
                  • Federal PELL grant
